Designing small bathrooms can often be a challenge: including all of the necessary units and being able to use them in comfort can be a struggle in a small space. If you are looking to remodel a small bathroom and are unsure as to how to go about it, here are five top tips for creating the perfect space.
1. Make use of a corner sink.
Pedestal sinks can often take up a large amount of the available bathroom space, so opt instead for a corner sink to remove this issue. Additionally, if you choose an option with built in storage underneath, you'll be saving yourself even more space.
2. Opt for a rounded vanity.
A rounded sink works perfectly in the corner of your bathroom - but works just as well with a pedestal sink. Rounded vanities look great - even in a square space - and will help you to avoid the issue of bashing your hip against sharp corners too.
3. Choose a wall-mounted tap.
To reduce the amount of space that your vanity takes up, simply tile the wall behind it and install a wall mounted tap. This gives you the benefit of being able to choose a smaller vanity which will take up less space - and also provides a beautiful bathroom feature that works with both traditional and contemporary designs.
4. Attach your towel rail to a door.
While you may have been able to configure your small bathroom to include all of the necessary units, it can sometimes be hard to find the space for other essentials such as towel rails. As a solution to this problem, simply affix a towel rail to the outside of your shower door, or to the inside of your bathroom door. You may well still need to store additional towels in a laundry cupboard or elsewhere, but you'll have easy access to your towel when using the bathroom.
5. Choose a shower curtain instead of a screen door.
While glass shower doors look attractive, they can also take up valuable space - and require a decent amount of space in order to be able to swing open and closed with no problems. Choose a simple, pull across shower curtain instead, and you'll save a lot of space.
Refitting a smaller bathroom may seem like a daunting task, but careful planning and sensible storage can free up space and make the room feel less claustrophobic.
